Penguins cross their flippers for spring babies

Mum’s the word on everyone’s minds at The National Sea Life Centre in Birmingham as the Penguins cross their flippers for Spring babies.

The National Sea Life Centre’s colony of Gentoo Penguins has been readying their nests for some potential spring arrivals. These budding mums and dads are the first pairings since the arrival of the new birds in November and aquarists at the attraction have been astounded by how quickly the new family has meshed.

Hayley Roberts, Aquarist and Penguin Whisperer at The National Sea Life Centre Birmingham said; “It’s amazing to see the new pairs being affectionate and preparing their nests together. It’s the noisiest time of the year here at the attraction as our couples sing their individual love songs to each other. So romantic!” Fingers crossed visitors will be lucky enough to catch the pitter patter of tiny, fluffy flippers in the coming months.
